Allow me to preface this review by saying that I would not trade my t68 for any thing in the world, save probably a new 468. I have been using my marker steadily for the past year and I adore almost everything about it. The parts that I don't really enjoy or that I would change have largely been dealt with in the 468 platform, such as making the Lok-Bolt standard issue, And if you were like me and thinking about getting a T68 then by god get one, it is a night and day difference for me with it installed.

Now onto the things that I dislike about the marker overall. To take the marker apart is a bit more troublesome than most markers I have worked with, which normally isn't something I would complain about, but if a single screw strips like it did on my mag well, then you cannot take the marker apart. My second point is the old 18 round mags, I had nothing but trouble with them before I purchased my Lok-Bolt, (Seriously buy a Lok-Bolt for your T68 already!), and I still have some problems every now and again with the internals of the mags, but nothing that will pull me out of playing for the day. The mags are also hindered by the spring release as it sits on to on the magazine itself. This was a large enough issue for me that I had to buy bungee top magazine pouches to accommodate the release.

Now for the fun part, the pros! The marker is and of itself a blank easel and you are but a painter, trying to paint their masterpiece. In all seriousness this marker can fit any look and any setup, from a DMR with a scope, bi-pod, and mock suppressor; to a high speed assault rifle with a fore grip and a red dot sight. All this accompanied by the choices of rail systems and hand guards, you can literally make it -your- marker, not just Tippman Alpha Black #60716. And as for the construction it is all metal, save the bolt which is made of plastic making this thing a veritable tank of a marker, I have fallen on it, bumped it up against trees, and wallowed in the mud with it and never had a problem nothing more than a barrel swab or squeegee couldn't fix.

Pictured above (Hopefully) if the set up I am running with my T68, and as you can probably tell a marker like this -will- turn heads at your field. I did the paint job with spray paint and some markers for the little splotches of color for camo (not the best job in the world I know.) I cannot count the times that someone has wanted to hold the marker and shoot it. I will tell you however, you must get in the mindset that you probably cannot go toe-to-toe with an average paintballer with a hopper; at best you have 20 rounds ready to go while they have upwards of 200. Now don't let that discourage you, instead let it be viewed as a challenge. As an extra note, I have found that if you are playing with this it is a little easier to view down your sight with the mask on by putting your sight, like I have done mine, on a riser and further down your marker.

In closing I would like to state that yes, the T68 has some short comings, but it can be made to fit your tastes and play styles, and with the new First Strike compatible mags and mag well coming out in just a week or so for the T68 the platform is far from dead in Rap4's eyes I feel.

I bought this gun used off of eBay, and I was generally impressed with it. It was accurate, comfortable to hold, and looked cool in general. It was very accurate right out of the box, and was a joy to shoot. I was unimpressed with the balance on it however, as I found the center of mass to be too far forward for my personal tastes, and I don't like the priciness of the magazines. I also noticed it chopped paint frequently if I shot faster than twice every second. I was happy to see it in good condition for the price that I paid, I was expecting to have to work on it a bit due to its cheap cost, and it has become one of my favorites to use.

This gun was a mess for me.

It basically only worked once or twice the entire time I owned it. RAP4 basically left me out to dry, so I was on my own.

Pros: Looks cool. Its like a Real AR, just a bit bulkier and magazines were unrealistic, but hey, at the time there really wasn't anything closer. It was also neat to have air in the stock.

Cons: Where to begin. The gun is made of cheap metal for being so expensive. Besides that, the internals are basically all Spyder. Tolerances were shoddy as well. Absolute pain to keep up, since you break a single ball (and that will happen A LOT unless you have the new bolts), you will prbably need to tear the gun down. And it's not easy or fun to tear down. Magazines often fed paint wrong, and would chop as a result. Never bothered with the splitfire.

Overall, a complete mess. Extremely overpriced, for very little actual use. I wouldn't recommend this gun to anyone that isn't a crazy milsim player who isn't afraid of constant maintenance and problems.

I've found mine to be very unrelieable, always breaking down, only worked once for me, all after that nothing but problems. But, on the up side, it is highly customizeable, and looks awesome. Very realistic. In all, not at all worth what I payed for it. (over $1000 invested)

Pros: Looks and feels like a real M4
Cons: A lot of maintenance
I have owned my Rap4 T68 Gen 7 now for a little over 6 months, but I use it just about every weekend. Like most I've had my crazy awesome moments with it and had some very frustrating times as well.

Pros: It looks and feels exactly like the M4. Yes the stock is thicker and a little longer because of the 13ci 3,000 psi tank, but that is negligible and allows you to carry less weight (no backpack tank or heavy 48+ci tank as buttstock). The actions, from reloading a magazine to charging the marker, are spot on! This is also one of the most accurate markers I have fired/seen. I play against "speedballers", some of which have $1,300+ markers, can fire 13+bps, and carry 1,500+ rounds (for a normal woodsball game), so you are at a disadvantage in terms of ammo and rate of fire; but I can usually shoot further and more accurate then them. The rail system is also a big plus. I know a lot of people suggest that it is pointless, but a good picatinny R.I.S. can come in real handy. I play night games and have a powerful flash light and a laser (use laser to identify targets to the rest of the team). I use a 3x zoom scope on a 1" riser and it helps to see players that are hidden, with a magnification that is is relevant to the distance I can shoot (i.e. I don't need a 12x scope cause I can only shoot 100 feet). Sometimes I attach my Land Warrior II camera on my barrel for some great action shots. Probably the two best reasons for the R.I.S. are the ability to put a sling on it and I always run with a bipod-foregrip. After an all day scenario, most people's arms want to fall off, not mine, and when I set it down I deploy the bipod and have a perfect show piece. Yes it is heavy, but there is a trade off there. This thing is made completly out of metal (aluminum or something, not sure, but it's 99% metal, only thing plastic is the bolt). That makes it very durable and allows it to take some punishment. I play aggressively and needed a marker that could take some punishment, and this does.

Pro: Customer service. I had issues when I first got this marker, and the staff answered all my emails within 24 hours, and in most cases shipped me parts to help fix the problem. They have been a pleasure to work with, and although their products have a "rap" for being of lower quality (I disagree with that, but they do have some bugs they need to fix), the staff is always trying to help.

Pro: When you carry this around, everyone turns their head. I have literally had a line of 10+ people waiting just to hold it and load/unload a magazine. It has serious SWAG.


Cons: Cons are very simple with the marker, it needs constant cleaning! If you want a marker that you can take out every once in a while, and maybe lube the o-rings but that's about it, THIS IS NOT THE MARKER FOR YOU! This is a high-end marker that is designed to be used by knowledgeable players. Don't be like me and buy this as your first marker, and be shocked when you can't figure it out. First issue is cleaning, it is not the easiest, nor is it the hardest, to completely disassemble and clean, but it requires tools. I can do it in less than 10 minutes (full disassemble, clean & reassemble) in the heat of battle with full gear, including mask (and no it is not easy and takes practice to do that quick, but you probably should start practicing because odds are, during an all day game, you'll probably have to do a full tear-down and cleaning at least once). Main problem is chops. This issue has been "fixed" I say it with "" because its more like been "band-aided." Rap4 came out with 2 parts that are suppose to fix the chopping issue, each about $50. The "Anti-Chop Bolt," helps, but is poorly constructed and breaks after less than a case. Part of problem is the bolt has a spring in it to prevent chopping, but the back of bolt that holds spring in is very weak and tends to crack making it useless (doesn't even weigh enough to be used as a paper weight after). The other fix, the "LOK-Bolt Adapter" is as great as it says it is. It will essentially completely eliminate chops. It has a metal piece connected to a spring that prevents the bolt from moving forward unless the ball is completely in the chamber. Awesome fix, but if you get a chop, you must completely clean the marker and bolt or you will just continue to have issues. Barrel breaks happen, maybe more with mine because I have used older paint and I have a rifled barrel (not sure if the rifled barrel would increase barrel breaks, but sounds reasonable). but they happen. The marker is not as gentle on the paint as some of the "speedball" guns out there. Just carry a pull through squeegee for the barrel and you'll be fine, but don't continue to fire it without cleaning the barrel or the problem will get worse and eventually you have a problem in the chamber and in the bolt.

Recommendations: Don't grip the marker by the mag-well when firing. Most time this is the reason for a chop. When you grip it at the mag-well you un-seat (de-seat?) the magazine and either get double feeds, chops or simply misfires. Buy the LOK-Bolt Adapter if you plan on playing magazine fed, it will save you a lot of headaches. The marker has 2 velocity adjusters, one in the rear of the marker under the air tank adapter, and on on the right side of receiver by mag-well. Do not underestimate the importance of the velocity adjuster on the receiver. It is difficult to know if you got the allen key in it or not since you can't see it, so I suggest when you have it in (do this until you understand how it feels) tighten it all the way, it will stop moving, then you'll know you have the allen in the slot, keep it in there with one hand, and chrono with it in. Stupid suggestion, but trust me it saves a lot of headaches. CLEAN YOUR MARKER AND MAGAZINES after or at least before every time you use it. If you get a chop it will bleed into magazine and will contaminate any paint you put in the magazine from then on until you clean it. Do not over oil. I like to oil my marker, then dry fire it a couple times to get excess out, then swab your barrel with a clean swab to clean out any excess oil. This will help your rounds to fly fast and true.

Last suggestion is to get a side arm. To be honest, I trust this marker as much as the U.S. Marines trusted their M16 in Vietnam when it first came out. When it works, damn does it work, but when it doesn't it's very frustrating. Get a side arm, so when it goes down in the heat of the battle and you have a whole unit in your sights, you can still take care of business (either that or do what I do, grab a handful of paint and start throwing).

I think the most important thing to remember in paintball is that no matter what marker you buy, it is going to fail you at some point without the proper maintenance. Even my buddies with the $1,300+ "speedball" markers have to use a rental every once in a while because theirs crapped out on them.

Okay last suggestion, buy from a Rap4 dealer or eBay if you can. If they are authorized dealers, the 5-year warranty is valid, but you will save a ton of money on shipping and handling. Sure the shipping is the same, but their handling charges are crazy ridiculous!!! http://www.actactical.com/servlet/StoreFront seems to be a good dealer, and they have a helpful facebook page as well.

Good luck out there, if any of you have problems with your Rap4 T68 Gen7, hit me up, I'm happy to share my experiences and troubleshoot the issues with you.
